About Us

B irmingham Live brings you reviews and photos from gigs throughout the Birmingham area, the latest news, album reviews, interviews and a regularly updated gig guide.

Search for a band or venue for in-depth reviews and some great band photography.

We love the atmosphere of a small, intimate gig as well as the energy of a stadium or festival. No matter what venue, we aim to be there.

Birmingham Live are proud to bring you new talent and aim to support up and coming photographers and writers to produce the passionate gig reviews and stunning photography you can find here on Birmingham Live!
